Accurately measuring a student’s potential and progress can transform learning and help us make informed decisions about individual learners, their educational needs and where to focus our teaching efforts.

At Ryan Global School Chembur, we use Cambridge Lower Secondary testing structure to assess learner performance and report progress to students and parents.

Classroom assessment
Not only academics, but IGCSE also assesses the skills we want students to develop so that they can reflect on, and improve their performance:

  • Available for Art & Design, Digital Literacy, Music and PE.
  • Feedback on ‘what went well’ and how students can improve further.
  • Help students to reflect on and improve their performance.
  • Use throughout the year.
